Can You Get Married on the Spot in Las Vegas?

The quick answer is Yes and No.

In order to get married on the spot, you will still need to obtain a Nevada Marriage License.

To get a license, both parties will need to be present at the license bureau with government issued ID’s. The identification can be from foreign countries as long as it could be understood in English.

Given that, you can see how a “let’s get married now” or “surprise! I’ll marry you now” scenario can be close to impossible. Contrary to popular belief, there’s an adult level stage to getting married in Las Vegas. It’s not all juvenile fun.

However, you can get obtain your license and get married all before breakfast. It will only take on average 15 minutes to get a license and another 15 minutes to get married (usually).

There are wedding chapels in Las Vegas that have the whole two-hour production and those that have the drive up windows. Yup! You don’t even have to get out of your car.

So where do you get your license, how and how much?

On 201 E Clark Ave. Las Vegas, NV 89101, on the corner of Clark and 3rd street is the Marriage License Bureau. They are open from 8 am to midnight everyday of the year. It is $77 (as of 2019) to get a marriage license.

      2. Hello. Me and my fiancée are from the UK and are looking to get married in Vegas. Do we have to be in Vegas a certain time before we get married or can we fly over for 3 days and get it done within that period?

        1. Hi Kurt! Thanks for your comment! There is no waiting period to get married in Las Vegas. You can do everything in 3 days! 🙂

  3. Hi my boyfriend and I are thinking about getting married in Vegas. We aren’t planning on having a wedding, just a simple walk down the aisle, saying vows and “I do’s” and done. Is there a cost for that other than the marriage license fees?

    1. Congratulations Alyssa!

      Our Love & Cherish package is our most simple package with a walk down the aisle and a ceremony. You may also have a Short & Sweet signing of the paperwork which is just the “I do’s!”

      Congratulations again!

      Thanks for the comment! You will not need the divorce papers to apply for a marriage license. You will just need the date the divorce was finalized.
